A True Mountain Man

The master of technical mountaineering, Conrad has over 30 years of climbing and mountaineering experience under his belt, and is still chasing first ascents. He’s a visionary, a champion for the environment, a pioneer and the best comrade you’ll find at 25,000 feet—he’s dedicated every ounce of his being to this life.

Conrad will present his life of adventure, sharing what inspired him to pursue a career in the mountains along with tales and stunning footage of climbing the world’s most remote and challenging peaks, from expeditions on Meru to Queen Maud Land in Antarctica. Following the presentation will be an exclusive interview with Conrad, conducted by The North Face adventurer, Justin Jones.

First Time To Australia

On his visit to Australia, Conrad Anker says, “Australia captures the imagination. Since I was a youngster I’ve longed to visit this continent and the cheerful people that make it special. Thanks to The North Face I’ll have the chance to visit the Blue Mountains and share my story of adventure and alpinism with audiences in Sydney and Melbourne. I’m looking forward to meeting new friends and experiencing Australia.”

Up Close and Personal

The North Face will also be hosting an up-close and personal experience with Conrad Anker set in the Megalong Valley in NSW, for storytelling & fodder by the campfire. Please reach out if you have a team member interested in attending this special event.

Supporting Mountain Youth Services Team

To support the Mountain Youth Services Team (MYST), $10 from each ticket will be donated to aid the development of their Outdoor Explore bush adventure therapy program. Located in the heart of the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park, MYST has developed a specialisation in the delivery of bush adventure therapy programs over the past 25 years.

The program will give children and families an opportunity for a digital detox and a chance to learn, explore and discover the many benefits of bush adventure through a range of outdoor activities.

Born and grew up in Wales but now a fully fledged Aussie. A passionate mountain biker, hiker and general nature addict. I'm also a bit of a muso and enjoy a good craft beer every now and again (probably too often).

I hope what we do here at Tyres and Soles will inspire people to get out there and experience first hand, the natural wonders that surround them. So, pump up those tyres, don your favourite boots. Grab a mate, a partner, a pet… and head out into nature. But tell us all about it when you get back.

  • RIDE CONCEPTS POWERLINE – SHOE REVIEW
Aimed at the enduro and all-mountain crowd, with a superior fit and construction to most other flat pedal shoes on the market. The @ridecncpts Powerline is a shoe that is very hard to beat. 🤟🏼 Read the review in our bio link. | Photo credit: @seaninthedirt | Rider: @instarrdan
  • We love this shot from @dharcoclothing . The golden hour has to be one of the most magical times to ride. What do you think?

  • They’re baccccckkkkk... The Loam Grips are back and fully stocked (just like questionable 90s fashion, but better!)
  • Whether you're going for a day trip or a week of adventures, The North Face Base Camp duffles are roomy enough inside for all your gear. Just keep on cramming kit in there and you'll be surprised how much you can get into this is the iconic, super tough expedition duffel. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • How do you carry your junk? @allmountainstyle seem to have it all wrapped up with their OS Strap. 👍🏼 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • Threading our way through to the weekend with the @monsroyale MTB gear.🤘🏼 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The Leatt DBX 3.0 is one of the safest mountain bike helmets in the market. What’s protecting your noggin today? 🧠 | 📸 @seanmurr123 / @seaninthedirt
  • The weekend is one more sleep away. What are your plans? 😛 | 📸 @richardmcgibbon
  • The @granite_design ROCKnROLL is a perfect companion to take on those longer rides where a trailside fix is crucial to getting you home. The whole package weighs only 136g, so adding it to your pack or hip belt is low-cost in terms of weight, considering the ROCKnROLL has all the bits that you'll need to do your trailside fix. Now you can live the ROCKnROLL lifestyle you've always dreamed about!
  • Wow! Pretty much sums up what we thought of the @hentydesigns Enduro Backpack. If you're intrigued by these new age bum bags then have a read of our review on our website. | Photo credit: @richardmcgibbon
  • WHISTLER PERFORMANCE LUBES

There is a concern that eco-friendly products are not as effective as non-eco products. We have to call bullshit on this. The WPL range of lubricants is as good, if not better, than any non-eco friendly product on the market. best of all it doesn't harm the environment or you! | 📸@richardmcgibbon | #lube #lubedup #silkysmooth
  • With so many hydration gels, tabs and powders out there, it can be a little bewildering which ones to choose. We all have our favourites and over the years we tend to stick with what we know, so when we discover a new brand, we’re a little reluctant at first to go and spend our hard earned money on something that we don’t know will work for us, but after reading about @hdxmix story and the founder behind it, we must admit, we got very interested, indeed. 📸 @richardmcgibbon
